Watching Renewal Ceremonies at YouTube.com

I enjoyed and relaxed last night watching a series of renewal ceremonies at YouTube.com.

Just type in the words and YouTube.com will do the rest!

The common ground I saw was that many were an intimate event. Small group of attendees, two to 10 people. Some people just wore their everyday casual where others wore their formal wedding gowns.

My favorite was the Las Vegas Elvis! This officiant aka Elvis even walked the 'bride' down the aisle while playing the guitar! Now that's talent.

So, grab some popcorn and your hubby and enjoy a fun evening.

3 Advantages of Hiring a VA to Submit Your Articles - Corrie Petersen


Writing articles is important for any business. When you write articles and submit them, you become an expert in your field. When you become an expert, people begin to trust you. When you have that trust people will buy your products or use your services.

Another reason to submit articles is to get free advertising. We all know that advertising is the only way we can people to our site. When people go to your site they will look at what you have to offer and that leads to purchases.

Submitting your articles can be overwhelming. In this article you will see the advantages of hiring a VA to submit your articles. These are 3 advantages that will help you get through submitting your articles.

1. Focusing your time

Article submissions can be very time consuming if you don't know what you are doing or you are new to article submissions. When you hire a VA to do your article submissions you will be able to focus your time on other things that will help you grow your business.

2. Sites and more

When you hire a VA to do your article submissions you won't have to look for sites. You won't have to look at each site to make sure it has a category that meets the requirements of your articles. You won't have to create accounts and make notes of the web address, the login, and password.

Using a VA will help you greatly. A VA will have a list of article directories. She will be familiar with the information needed. She will also be able to get it done quickly.

When you use a VA to submit your articles, you will save time. Time you can use to increase your business, write more articles, or spend with your family.

As you can see, hiring a VA can help you become successful with your article submissions and more.
